The Ultimate Roadster – Introducing The Bugatti W16 Mistral

Bugatti W16 Mistral

Bugatti Mistral W16 marks the end of the W16 engine. Yes, this will be the last car to feature the iconic quad turbo W16 engine. But if you are thinking of buying it then tough luck, it’s already sold out! That’s right, before the vehicle is expected to be delivered, it’s already sold out — and at a $5 Million price tag.

Exclusive, elegant and powerful, Bugatti Mistral is the very best of its kind; this is the ultimate roadster. Bugatti has created an open top design in its more than 40% of it’s vehicles and established a long lineage of performance icons.

The W16 Mistral is an inspiration, it captures the essence of the Grand Raid’s windscreen and evolves it into the modern day art work. Its windscreen features great engineering, designed in such a way that creates a rounded visor design, without disturbing vision of the driver.

The Bugatti Mistral features some interesting design elements along with the ‘BUGATTI’ letters in front which makes the look amazing. Also, there is the classic Bugatti grill in the front with four stacked headlights on top of one another.

For one last time, Bugatti aims to build the fastest convertible; however, it is not chasing to record the top speed again.

The deliveries of new Mistral will start in 2024 along with the track-only-car.

Bugatti is now in the latest 1,600hp iteration as found in the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. However, the W16 Mistral is an open barchetta for an ultimate open air driving experience at a time of peak internal combustion engine.

The new car is limited to 99 pieces and the car will be fully homologated despite being a few-off limited series model. This particular car launch is presented in a distinct Bugatti specification, with the black paint contrasted by yellow accent details both on the exterior and interior.

Inside view of Bugatti Mistral is the two seater with an airplane-like cockpit which resembles Chiron. Even the Mistral’s center console, instrument cluster, and steering wheel almost look like Chiron’s. 

The launch of the Bugatti W16 Mistral has taken place at Quail: A motorsports gathering 2022, quickly becoming a perfect venue for the introduction of some of the most exciting cars in the world like Bugatti Mistral.

Mate Rimac, the CEO of Bugatti Rimac said that “the W16 powertrain and the union of a roadster format is absolute perfection. With a pair of large air intakes and the roof removed, feed you around 70,000 liters of air through the engine, like no other Bugatti driving the Mistral connects you to the intricate workings of this legendary powertrain.”
